By Hillerman, Tony



Loaded with e-book extras (not available in the print edition), including Tony Hillerman's running commentary on his work, his series heroes Leaphorn and Chee, and a special profile of the Navajo nation.Three shotgun blasts in a trailer bring Officer Chee and Lt. Leaphorn together for the first time in an investigation of ritual, witchcraft, and blood.Three shotgun blasts explode into the trailer of Officer Jim Chee of the Navajo Tribal Police. But Chee survives to join partner Lt. Joe Leaphorn in a frightening investigation that takes them into a dark world of ritual, witchcraft, and blood -- all tied to the elusive and evil "skinwalker." Brimming with Navajo lore and sizzling suspense, Skinwalkers brings Chee and Leaphorn, Hillerman's bestselling detective team, together for the first time.Finding Moon is many things: a latter-day adventure epic, a deftly orchestrated romance, an arresting portrait of an exotic realm engulfed in turmoil, and a neatly turned tale of suspense. Most of all, it is a singular story of how a plain, uncertain man finds his best self.

Hillerman, Tony

New York: Harper & Row, Publishers, 1986. 216 Pages. Cream boards with rose quarter-spine, silver spine lettering, and embossed logo on front board. No defects noted. Author signed on front endpaper. No other marks or stamps and dust jacket price $15.95 is unclipped, and date 0187 at bottom of flap. Has the feel of a book purchased for a collection and not opened for reading. Tony Hillerman's Navajo mysteries have comprised what the Washington Post Book World has called one of the consistently superior-and definitely distinctive-mystery series of the last 15 years. In Skin walkers, Lt. Joe Leaphorn and Officer Jim Chee of the Navajo Tribal Police are united for the first time in a murder investigation that leads them into the dark world of Navajo witchcraft. Three pins, identifying three unsolved homicides, remain stubbornly stuck in Joe Leaphorn's orderly wall map and in Joe Leaphorn's orderly mind. Defying the lieutenant's rational solutions, the crimes' only connection seems to be motiveless malice. With the attempted murder of Officer Jim Chee, another pin is added to the map, and a hint of witchcraft enters the picture. Is a Navajo skinwalker - -one who has turned away from the harmony of the Navajo Way to assume the terrible powers of witchcraft -- killing people? Or are the victims themselves practitioners of this form of Navajo witchcraft? Tony Hillerman's eighth novel brings together Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn and Officer Jim Chee, the two Navajo Tribal Policemen of his previous novels. It forces the older, more worldly Leaphorn to confront that part of the Navajo culture that he has always rejected -- shamanism and its reverse negative, adan'ti -- and it presents the young, educated, yet deeply traditional Chee, himself a fledgling shaman, with the more personal problem of staying alive. Skin walkers takes the reader deep into the canyons, mesas, and immense empty spaces of the Southwest, the Land Between the Sacred Mountains, and into the clan society of America's largest tribe. Unpretentiously imbued with the mystique of the Navajo culture, this is a moving book which will linger in the memory of its readers. This is the author's eighth mystery and the first featuring both Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee. . Signed by Author. First Edition First Printing Stated. Hard Back. As New/Near Fine.
